Songkran Festival badges not working - Update! They are working now!
I'm getting many reports that the Songkran Festival badges are not being awarded and no reports from anyone that got them. Garmin has probably messed up in some way.
I've checked the start and end date for the badges and they are correct, but those dates seems just to be used for making the badges visible in Garmin Connect:
My tip is to just continue trying for the next two days. Maybe it will work tomorrow.
I did a test and moved my activities to year 2019 and I got the badges. Year 2020 didn't work since Songkran Festival was cancelled that year due to the pandemic.
The badges are working now!
Yea. Logged an activity today but not awarded :(ReplyDelete
Oh yeah! They gave it right now 😎ReplyDelete
For people who did activities before it worked... It is possible to export them as fit files, delete original activity and import again. This rewarded me the badge as well.ReplyDelete
It is probably enough to make an edit to them. All I did was to report yet another activity (the 4th) for today and that single activity got two Songkran badges!Delete
I have done three activities so far today. Did not get a badge for the first one, and saw this posting, and was going to comment that it was the same for me. Before I did, however, I did my other two activities, one after the other, then synced my watch, and was awarded both the first and second badges for my second activity and the third badge for my third activity. No badge for the first activity.ReplyDelete
Great that everything is working now even though the behaviour was a little bit odd. I also got two badges for the same activity.Delete
yes all three are working now. thanks for looking into the problem :)ReplyDelete
All ok here as well. fwiw I am doing a MTB ride each day with a couple of good hills to help towards that cycling climbing badge.ReplyDelete
I got the 3 badges for 3 activities in 3 days, but last Saturday 2 of them disapeared.
I still have the 3 notifications in my Garmin connect message box, but not the 2 last related badges.
Do someone encounter the problem?
That can happen if you change your country and then make changes to the activities that awarded you with the badges. You should get them back if you change the country to Thailand again and edit the activities.Delete
Thank you Andy, I'm back now to Thailand; but what do you mean by edit activities?Delete
What I usually do is that I change the name of the activity or add 1 calorie. I think that if you change the privacy setting for the activity also counts as an edit. I'm not sure if adding a note counts as an edit.Delete
it works! my 2 badges are back.Delete
Thank you very much Andy
